    My sister and I were looking for a place to eat one night We wanted to try something new so we went to Casablanca. Neither of us had been before but I had head some good things through the grapevine so we decided to give it a try. We walked into a dimly lit, nearly empty restaurant and was eventually greeted by a hostess/bartender/waitress. She asked if we had a reservation. From where I was standing, I counted a total of three (3) parties in the place. We told her that we didn't know that we needed one. After leaving the hostess station to scope out her empty restaurant, she eventually came back and seated us. The hostess/waitress acted as if she was doing us a favor by seating us. That put a bad taste in my mouth right off the bat. As I looked over the menu, it appeared to be very similar to Byblos, Babylon, etc with once exception: The prices were high as giraffe nuts! We already had a bad taste in our mouths from the rude server/hostess so we got up and left - didn't even eat. First time I've ever done that! I'll give Casablanca 2 stars, only because I didn't actually get anything to eat. The service sucked and the hostess acted like she was doing me a favor by seating us in a nearly empty over-priced restaurant. No thanks.

    Amazing atmosphere...when you walk in, you feel like you are in the Middle East somewhere. Their mint tea was wonderful..the service was great..very attentive and cordial. The food was good, especially the lamb meat.

    Been here twice so far and both times have been awesomely memorable. Everything has been delicious and truly kosher with fresh ingredients, good portions, and friendly, attentive service. The harira soup and moussaka are especially tasty, and I'd venture to say the banana surprise a la mode was one of the best things I've ever had. I'd come just for that alone.

    I was excited to try this place out because of the great reviews on Yelp but what a disappointment. Service was extremely slow; we waited nearly 20 minutes to order drinks (we were one of only 3 tables). For an appetizer we ordered the stuffed grape leaves which were tasty (hence the 2 stars) but huge. My husband and I were treating his sister to dinner and she was excited to get a lamb gyro but to our surprise they DO NOT serve lamb gyros! :( So she went with the beef which was mediocre. I had the vegetable couscous plate which was served in a clay pot and way too hot to eat. By the time mine cooled, my companions were finished eating. In addition, the couscous and veggies were extremely bland and I had to wait another 15 minutes just to flag down the waitress to get a side of tzatziki sauce. My poor husband is still baffled at the fact that he ordered a stuffed Cornish hen and they served him HALF of a Cornish does a restaurant justify that decision? Way over priced for bland, mediocre food. I've had frozen Moroccan food that had more flavor.

    This place is a serious ripoff especially post-hurricane Katrina. The quality does not match the ridiculous prices and the woman that owns it is not concerned about the customer in anyway, only her big profit. She should not be in the restaurant business. Bring your money elsewhere there are much better places to get this same type of food that is much higher quality and for a lot less money. Do yourself a favor & go to other restaurants around the area instead. I don't want to give it any stars but yelp forces you too put at least one.

    We ate at Casablanca last night for the first time. The atmosphere was very nice...I wasn't expecting that from a strip mall location off of Severn. The food was plentiful and the server was very nice. We had the spinach pies which we did not really like at all. I will say that I'm used to the "Mediterranean spinach pies" so I was hoping for something like that. I had the Couscous Plate with the lamb and it was pretty solid. It had a nice amount of meat on it and the veggies were very good. It was also a very large bowl that came to the table steaming. I thought the food was good but there is so much good food around here. Would I go back? Maybe.

  • Caroline W.

    I will be back, drank a whole pot of Moroccan tea here and could have drank another. My friend spent most of the meal looking at all the decorations on the walls. The taste of the food was fresh and bursting with flavor

  • Tarek H.

    Great food! Really nice and clean inside

  • John F.

    Casablanca is a very nice restaurant that will give you a lot of food for your money. We split a mango salad as a starter. It's a full meal, but it can work as an appetizer too. The Koufta Kabob Plate is a must have. It is bursting with flavor and nicely seasoned. The staff were very helpful and we could not ask for better service. This was a nice close to a business trip to New Orleans. Hopefully we'll be back soon.

    This was my first visit to Casablanca. My wife and I had just been to International Market looking for Indian and Moroccan food ingredients, and we left hungry. We asked Yelp what was nearby, and up popped Casablanca, so off we went. We're trying to save money, so that 23 dollar lamb tagine dish I was salivating over will have to wait. Or I'll make it at home in my own tagine, now that I have the proper stuff! I went for the 12 dollar koufta-in-a-pita with rice, and my wife chose the chicken shawarma, same price, same pita, same side. We each had a taste of the other's fillings (the fillings in the pita, not the fillings in our teeth), and pronounced them decidedly yummy. One other reviewer made a comment about there being an unusual flavor she couldn't identify, like that's a bad thing. To me, that's sort of what I expect to find at a decent ethnic food joint. Part of the problem some folk in the US have with decent Middle Eastern food is they use all the spices we're used to in sweet desserts for savory dishes. First time I ever tried a lamb kebab with allspice, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger, I was sold. So what if my Moroccan rice wound up tasting like it was seasoned with perfume and Christmas potpourri? Nothing wrong with that! I wish I could have sampled a bit more of the offerings, but hey, we're saving up for a trip. Next time! Until then, based on two dishes, I'd have to say this is one of the better Middle Eastern restaurants I've visited, and well worth visiting again.

    The food is very good. We ordered the appetizer sampler and everything on it was so good. We eat Mediterranean quite a bit and this place did not disappoint at all!! We also had the gyro and shawarma sandwiches and they were full of flavor. We finished off the dinner with hot mint tea. I would definitely recommend this place and will be coming back. New Orleans really has something for everyone.

  • Rachel S.

    This is one of the best, most authentic Mediterranean restaurants in the greater New Orleans area. The family is originally from Israel but have been cooking here for 20+ years. It's the only truly Kosher restaurant in Louisiana. The sampler platter is delicious with the Babaganoush, hummus, falafel, grape leaves, etc. Everything here is made from scratch including the cous cous. It's one of those places that you use to measure up others restaurant's food but typically doesn't compare.

  • LaVina D.

    I love bastilla - I can't say enough how much I love it. We were stopping to get some new scrubs and after go to dinner elsewhere, but we saw this and decided to try it. Our other friend had a pretty good schnitzel sandwich, but our bastilla tasted like it was leftover from something else. It had no crunch and very soggy. It was also super heavy on cinnamon. Definitely not worth $21. I do feel that other item could be really good.

  • Natasha S.

    I'm in town from Los Angeles and this place is great! Service is excellent and the food is great. If you're looking for a kosher restaurant in NOLA, do not miss this place.

    My husband and I needed to find a place to take our vegan daughter for her graduation night celebration meal. Plus, our daughter-in-law and granddaughter are vegetarians, so we really had a task deciding where to celebrate. I happened to hear a recommendation from someone who called in to a local foodie radio show. They had recently eaten at Casablanca and were happy with the vegan and vegetarian dishes there. We ate there last Wednesday night (9/2) and had such a great meal. There was something delicious for everyone! I happen to love Mediterranean food and had actually eaten there a few years back. It is also a kosher restaurant, which usually means I won't be happy, but not in this case. My husband ate the cornish hen, I had the gyros, and all of our vegan/vegetarian family ate felafel and hummus. My daughter also does not eat pita, so they were kind enough to prepare her some raw vegetables so she could enjoy her hummus. Their Moroccan rice was fragrantly delicious. I can't wait to eat there again. A big thank you to Casablanca for making my daughter's grad night celebration dinner a success. And it was also nice to eat at a restaurant that truly understands the concept of vegan and vegetarian food; not just as a trendy bit to round out the menu.

    I'm going to start off by saying that the fries were so good I ate them all before I took the picture of my falafel sandwich to upload on here. The fries were a little soft (how I like them) and had a lot of seasoning on them, fry heaven....!!! However, the rest of my $11(!!) take-out meal was horrendous. The falafel on my sandwich was so burned I only ate one of them. The salad and sauce inside the pita had a weird flavor and aftertaste that I can't quite pinpoint. Usually the mix of cucumber, tomato, and onion is refreshing... this fell flat. Those fries may get me to come back one day but I will not be ordering the same sandwich.

  • Dr F.

    Fantastic food and love having a delicious kosher corner in New Orleans. I love the ambiance and Hebrew music playing in the background. Creative Moroccan Jewish decorations and warm ambiance make for an excellent dining experience. I always feel at home here.

  • David H.

    I ate here with a larger group, but the waitress made us feel right at home, and we had no troubles with our orders. We called ahead and the tables were all pushed together waiting for us. We got two of the sampler appetizers and dove right in - the highlights were the Baba Ganoush which had a great texture, and the spinach pyramid with their dill sauce. The Moroccan mint tea was also a great addition, can't go wrong as it compliments the spices in the Moroccan food quite well. I had Chicken Marrakesh for an entree and wished I had ordered half rice and half vegetables (the menu gives a choice between the two) but a plate of rice wore itself out. Luckily one of my companions asked for their hot sauce which was a crucial addition to the dish - it made the flavors that much more intricate! Finishing off the meal with balaclava and the Chocolate Mousse Cake satisfied the sweet tooth, but one aspect of balaclavas that I felt was missing was the layers and layers of flaky pastry. The filling was flavorful and the texture was there, but I just wished the ratio of the flakiness to the filling was a little more. No qualms with the chocolate cake though, I'd order that for breakfast if given the choice. The decor of the restaurant is apparently all fairly new as they had substantial damage after Katrina, but it doesn't look like anything was ever wrong. The lighting and the murals all fit perfectly and the inside of the restaurant brings you far far away from New Orleans.

    excellent excellent! we had an amazing time at casablanca today; food good as usual Tanzia Fassi A+, this is my favorite restaurant in town always very very clean, great service and of course serves authentic moroccan food, by the way if you are vegan, gluten free, lactose intolerant or vegetarian big selection of dishes.

  • Jessica R.

    Just tried this for the first time today, but I can guarantee we will be customers for life! The wait staff was so sweet and friendly. We also got to meet the owners who have been running this place for 19 years. The restaurant is very cute and would be great for family or for a nice date night. It is a little pricy, but not outrageous considering they give you so much food. They also have an area upstairs for groups/parties.

    I was driving through the NOLA area last week and stopped for lunch at Casablanca, hoping it would be as good as I remembered. So many times I have gone back to a restaurant after many years of absence and it hasn't lived up to my memory. Casablanca definitely lived up to my memory on this visit. The bastilla was still divine, they serve you a large pie shaped slice and it is sweet and delicious. I ordered it with the rice (other choices are vegetables and fries) and thought the rice was nicely seasoned. I stole a bite of my stepson's schwarma and it still is as good as I remember. The tahini is creamy and delicious and the chopped salad complements the tender, tasty chicken well. I wish I had been hungry enough to eat two entrees, because it was a hard decision of which to order, since for all I know it may be another 12 years until I get there again. My honey ordered a lamb stew sort of dish that I can't remember the name of (a tagine maybe?) It was sweet and very tasty -- he thought it was too sweet but to me it was perfect. I was too shy to go up to the owner to remind her I used to know them way back when. I doubt they would have remembered me anyway. But, I definitely remember this amazing food and hope that it won't be so many years til I can experience it again.

    When I'm out in Metry (and it's not Saturday since they keep the Sabbath) I'll often stop at Casablanca. I'm a big fan of their spinach & feta pie. The menu is diverse enough to satisfy the average diner who is not as adventurous (that would be my brother) and the staff is polite and not hover-y.

  • H Z.

    Decoration is ok. Food is a little pricy than other Mediterranean restaurants in New Orleans.

  • Shannon S.

    This is probably the best Middle Eastern/Kosher restaurant in Metairie. They have different lunch specials daily and a solid regular menu. I've enjoyed everything I've eaten here and they have several dishes that generally are not found at other Middle Eastern restaurants in the area. The prices usually seem a bit more expensive than other restaurants of a similar type but you also seem to often get a bit healthier portions depending on what you order. While it is located in the typical Metairie ugly strip mall hell they do their best to redeem the interior with an atmosphere that is one of the most intricately decorated among restaurants of this type.

  • cat w.

    I went here because someone recommended it to me. From the outside it doesn't look like much and is located at a strip mall. I entered with the full intention of sticking to my caffeine free low carb diet. ......... That being said I started with a Turkish coffee (Yums I want more) I swiftly moved on to houmas and a Koufta kebab with way more pittas than I should have consumed. This place is not good for the diet great for the tastebuds. Looking forward to coming here for dinner do I can check out the drinks ;-)

    Good service. Hummus a little bland. Lamb couscous fantastic.
